**2007** Missouri – Turkey Creek CA – Check

Missouri – Complete!


So after I killed my two Dakota birds I packed my belongings and headed south to my fathers house in Bolivar, MO. My father moved to MO to practice medicine at a local hospital 5 years before. He told me numerous times to come and visit and hunt a local wma near his house. When I arrived my dad took me to the wma and we did a little scouting. We went back to his house and got ready for dinner that evening. We decided to go to Springfield, MO and eat at the Hemmingway inside Bass Pro Shops. Needless to say, my pops and I had a great time together. We went home and I got ready for the next morning hunt. That morning I went solo to the area I scouted the previous day. This area is quite small…maybe 200 acres if I recall. I went to the middle of the wma and sat down. After 45 minutes I heard a faint gobble in the distance. I got up and walked to the property line to see exactly where the gobble had come from. I heard it again, but this time it was further off. I decided to cutt and yelp excitedly to see how he responded. Immediately he cut me off and seemed to be a little bit closer. I then made the decision to turn around and call excitedly to the spot I originally started from. The longbeard kept gobbling and each time he got closer and closer. I sat tight and steered him into my location. I basically called softly and would direct my calls behind me to my left or right pending which direction he was going. After 30 minutes had passed he was within shooting range, but on the other side of this thicket. I basically waited him out until he popped his head around this big pine. My Browning Gold barked and this MO longbeard bit the dust. This MO longbeard was a dandy for sure. The MO longbeard had super nice spurs and two beards. I called my pops and he was quite shocked with my passing luck :D

David,

What is the cost of the MO license? I might could swing a MO trip at some point in time.
